Witness claims George Zimmerman molested her as a child.
FoxNews.com & myfoxorlando.com ^ | July 16, 2012 | FoxNews.com

Posted on 07/17/2012 2:37:29 AM PDT by carriage_hill

A potential witness in the case against George Zimmerman has testified that the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing Florida teen Trayvon Martin molested her when they were both children.

The unidentified woman told the Duval County State Attorney’s office that Zimmerman began abusing her when she was 6 and continued until she was 16, MyFoxOrlando.com reports. Zimmerman is older than the woman by a little more than a year. The woman also told police that Zimmerman and his family do not like African-Americans.

Phone calls Zimmerman made from the Seminole County Jail were also released. A total of 140 calls made in April of this year were included in the evidence made public.

Uh-oh... this, if true, isn't sounding like a childhood case of "playing doctor & nurse". Zero bearing on Martin case, but now everyone's heard it.

This makes me suspicious of her other claims.

Question: Is the woman making the charges black? She may have an agenda for her charges.

Wonder who paid her. I hope someone catches her on something specific and a perjury charge results.

My first thought was....under a blanket watching TV in Virginia?????? I lived there for a year. I can tell you that NEVER used a blanket. And kids watching TV back then????....not much.

An earlier article said she stated only that his “family” didn’t like blacks “unless they act white” but that she could not provide a single comment Z ever made to indicate he was prejudiced. Others here said the “prejudice” by his family was based on their failure to vote for Obama.

The fact that this prosecutor is playing these for the public shows me that she is running desperate. But is also shows that she doesn’t believe the allegations either, but they do indeed help in the public opinion forum because they are totally unadmissable in court I would think. Can we all say Mike Nifong?

Disgraceful half truth!

From csmonitor.com:

"Identified only as Witness No. 9, she would be about age 27 now."

Since Zimmerman's age is now 28/29, that means while she was 6 he was only 7 or 8. But I can see what's coming next: juxapositioned a photo of her at 6 and Zimmerman's adult orange jumpsuit mugshot photo.

Haven’t seen any pics, but from the name I’m guessing she’s another “White-Hispanic”, or something like that. Hard to tell these days... what with so many being 1/32nd this and 1/16th that, and all those high cheekbones.

O'Mara said his client didn't molest this woman and denies allegations that Zimmerman's family is racist. "In her first anonymous phone call to the police, that's all she talked about. She's a racist, he's a racist, the whole family is a racist. Interestingly, when the FBI did their investigation, they found no evidence of racism. When she told that story, and it didn't get turned, she came up with the next story, suggesting sexual abuse, which is without any bases and fact."

This Christina needs help -- psychiatric help. And so do Corey and Lester for releasing this unbalanced woman's statements. Their only relevance these have is on a psychiatrist's couch somewhere and in determining how much Zoloft she needs.

The reason that this obviously unbalanced woman’s statement is out there is because this order calling for it’s release from Judge Lester:

“In this Court’s opinion, application of the McCrary test requires the disclosure of this statement. The public discussion relating to this case indicates that the Defendant’s attitude towards race may be an issue at trial. Adding this statement to the discourse will simply be another piece of the puzzle to be relied upon by those who want to believe that there was a racial motive to the shooting, and will be dismissed by those who claim there is no such motive.”

http://www.flcourts18.org/PDF/Press_Releases/order%20denying%20reconsideration%20of%20release.pdf

What the hell is this judge talking about??? There was no racial accusation in this against George Zimmerman. Lester released it because of the selacious nature of the sexual accusations that have no bearings on this case before him and because, and because it would further damage the Zimmerman family who he is out to get.

Just more of the same despicable tactics from America's enemies.

The first key to battle is to recognise the tactics of the enemy.

This isn't about a dead 17 year old, its about group grievances and manipulating public opinion by a complicit media.

Unless the woman in question was an orphan and Zimmerman had a twenty year old man helping him by holding her down - this is bull.

This is the judge’s rationale for putting this stuff out there:

“In this Court’s opinion, application of the McCrary test requires the disclosure of this statement. The public
discussion relating to this case indicates that the Defendant’s attitude towards race may be an issue at trial. Adding this statement to the discourse will simply be another piece of the puzzle to be relied upon by those who want to believe that there was a racial motive to the shooting, and will be dismissed by those who claim there is no such motive.”

http://www.flcourts18.org/PDF/Press_Releases/order%20denying%20reconsideration%20of%20release.pdf

But there is no racial accusation in thses statements about GZ at all. It’s all about children and sex. Is it possible that this kind of stuff excites Judge Lester???

W9 has made, I think, about 4 recorded statements. In the earliest ones, Feb 28 or so, she accuses Zimmerman of being a racist. says it flat out, that George does not like black people and that he is confrontational.

The statements of hers released yesterday were made on March 20th. One of the two recordings goes tho this racism allegation, and she recants her allegation by saying she doesn't know of any incidence of George acting or talking racist.

But that Feb 28 statement is still out there, and one might wonder what motivated her to make it? Well, cure the unwelcome sexual advances statement. She's had this bad feeling about amorous George for a decade. While at a glance, her allegation appears only damaging to Zimmerman, it also cuts against her credibility as far as her racial allegations against Zimmerman.

I think O'Mara would want to know all this about her - the fact that it's public, now instead of later, is an artifact of Florida's sunshine law. I don;t blame the system - W9 decided her experience with George was relevant to the case, so it all comes in.

The public reaction is unpredictable, except die-hard Martin supporters will continue to be irrational.

She was six, he was seven, they’re cousins. The FBI finds no racial motivation in Martin’s shooting. Not that any of that matters to the news media.

But did it have to become public for O'Mara to know about all that she said??

Isn't there some stuff that is released to the defense but not the public??

If it is so good for O'Mara to know this stuff, then why did he fight so hard to keep it from being released???

WITNESS... claims George Zimmerman molested her as a child.

"Witness...." to WHAT?

Nowhere in this story does it even suggest that she has knowledge of the "incident" in question, soooooo, HOW can she be considered a "Witness?"

Keeping Out Prior Bad Acts

http://www.relentlessdefense.com/post-detail.php?id=2299

If you have a criminal record, the prosecutor may try to introduce evidence of your “prior bad acts” in your criminal trial.

This type of evidence is allowed (is “admissible”) only in limited circumstances, but do not expect the judge or the prosecutor to guard your rights in this regard. You need a savvy criminal defense lawyer, who understands the rules of evidence, to prevent prior bad acts evidence from reaching the jury and unfairly influencing the outcome of your trial.

The Federal Rules of Evidence govern the types of evidence that are admissible at trial in federal court. Both the federal and the state rules limit the introduction of evidence of a defendant’s “prior bad acts.”

Specifically, a prosecutor may not use this evidence as proof of the defendant’s bad character; or to show the defendant’s propensity for committing the same type of crime; or to prove the likelihood that the defendant committed the particular crime at issue in the trial.

However, the law does allow a prosecutor to introduce evidence of prior bad acts for other purposes, including to establish motive, opportunity, intent, preparation, plan, knowledge or identity.

Thus, for example, if a defendant is on trial for bank robbery, the prosecutor may not tell the jury about the defendant’s prior bank robberies if the only reason for doing so is to cast the defendant as a “bank robber” or a “criminal character.”

If, however, all of the bank robberies share the same distinctive modus operandi, then the jury may learn about the past robberies as a means of connecting the defendant to the current robbery.

CONCLUSION: Either the Beeatch DA is the dumbest State's Attorney in FL, OR, she knows that this "alleged molestation" can NOT be introduced and has NO bearing on this case, thus she (and the biased, corrupt Judge) are INTENTIONALLY, "Poisoning" the potential Jury Pool and the well!
